For decades, Guests were able to traverse “The Most Magical Place on Earth” with Disney’s bus and Monorail services as well as their own cars. But Disney introduced a fantastic new way to get around the Resort a few years ago, and we can’t imagine the Resort without it!

Guests can board Disney’s Skyliner and glide past incredible views of the Disney Resort’s waterways, woodlands, and two Walt Disney World theme parks. The Skyliner connects to both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT, meaning both of these Parks are just a short ride away.

However, the Skyliner is set to close in just a few months for a refurbishment.

Disney just revealed that the Skyliner would be closing next year for a refurbishment. The closure will take place from January 22 through the 29 of 2023 for some routine maintenance. We are unsure of what exactly will be worked on or if anything will be upgraded.

Of course, bus transportation will be available between all resorts and theme parks during that time.

The Disney Skyliner allows Guests staying at Disney’s Art of Animation, Disney’s Pop Century, Disney’s Caribbean Beach, or Disney’s Riviera Resort to travel from their resort to two Disney theme parks — EPCOT or Disney’s Hollywood Studios — all while taking in beautiful views of Disney landscape.
